Cemetery and French Quarter Walking Tour

Tours New Orleans
$25
Spend some time learning about the fascinating history of one of New Orleans' oldest neighborhoods with this 2-hour French Quarter and cemetery walking tour.

Meet your guide in the heart of the French Quarter to begin exploring this famous district.

Founded in 1718 by famed French-Canadian explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, New Orleans (and more specifically, what is now called the French Quarter or Vieux Carre) has been home to many colorful inhabitants and happenings.

In its early beginnings as a French Colony, the city was first settled with Paris' most notorious prison outcasts before the addition of European aristocrats, the land-owning gentry. This strange mix of hedonism and money attracted purveyors such as Voodoo practitioners, saloon keepers, and women of the night.

Venture into the most famous cemetery in New Orleans, St. Louis No. 1. This hollowed ground boasts the final resting place of famed Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau and a tomb owned by the still-living Nicholas Cage.

Places you'll see and things you'll hear about throughout the tour include the Mississippi River, Jackson Square, The Cabildo, The Presbytere, St. Louis Cathedral, The French Market, Café du Monde, Madame John's Legacy, the Baroness Pontalba, Andrew Jackson, The Battle of New Orleans, The Louisiana Purchase, Marie LaVeau, Jean Lafitte, and more.

$250
Learn about the women who shaped New Orleans's architectural and cultural history on this three hour walking tour. Explore 1 1/2 miles of the famous French Quarter while a local, expert guide details the amazing stories of the influential women who preserved, advocated for, and fought for the modern city of today.

New Orleans is easily one of the most unique and diverse cities in the world. Famously blending a past full of Spanish, French, and West African cultures with pre-civil war antebellum plantation homes, modern development and the scars of a recent natural disaster, the city offers a depth of complexity in its architecture, cuisine, and people. Understanding how the city came to be and how all these seemingly disparate elements form a cohesive whole takes time, patience, and a talented guide. This tour seeks to explore the city through a lens less commonly peered through but equally important to the development of the modern city: the influential women whose hard work, dedication, and foresight led to the creation of a protected and preserved historic French Quarter.

The tour moves through the famous neighborhood visiting historic sites where ordinary women accomplished extraordinary things.  We explore the lives and works of Micaela Pontalba, Martha Robinson, Elizabeth Werlein, Sr. Frances Xavier, Sr. Marie Hacard, Henritte Delille and Marie Laveau among others and put their accomplishments into historical context in the City of New Orleans.  Some groups choose to visit an urban plantation or townhouse within the French Quarter as part of the tour to see how some of these women lived. (Admission fees (ranging from $6-10 per person) are extra.)   For tours that include "embedded" tours, starting hours are dependent upon hours of operation at each museum.)

Tours are meant to be flexible and allow you the opportunity to engage your guide with conversation, ask questions, and pursue areas of interest without the rigid adherence of a set itinerary.

Destrehan Plantation and Swamp Tour Combo from New Orleans

Multiday Tour New Orleans
$102
Combine two excellent New Orleans day trips with this 6-hour experience visiting Destrehan Plantation and going on a swamp tour. Visit the 1787 Antebellum house, including an 1811 slave revolt museum/cabin on the grounds along with its massive oak trees. Next take a swamp tour in the bayou to look for alligators, turtles, snakes, and other wildlife.

Get picked up at your New Orleans hotel for this day trip, which lasts a little more than 6 hours.

Start with a visit to Destrehan Plantation, established in 1787 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It remains the oldest documented plantation home in the lower Mississippi Valley. Travel through time from the French and Spanish Colonial periods through the Antebellum grandeur of the sugar barons to the ravages of the Civil War and the rebirth of reconstruction. Immerse yourself in the rich history of Louisiana when French was the language, and the white gold of sugar drove the economy.

Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history will intrigue every visitor to the site. The plantation exhibits an original document signed by President Thomas Jefferson and Secretary of State James Madison. Destrehan Plantation was the site where one of the three trials took place following the 1811 Slave Revolt, one of the largest slave revolts in U.S. History.

During the Civil War, the Union Army seized the plantation and established the Rost Home Colony where newly-freed slaves learned trades enabling them to transition into a life of freedom. Located on the historic River Road, this Antebellum home with its plush green grounds and moss-draped Live Oaks watches over the banks of the Mississippi River just minutes away from New Orleans.

A house tour takes roughly one hour, with time to walk the grounds and see the slave cabin. This may include time for lunch (own expense).

Next, head for the bayou for your swamp tour. From the relaxed comfort of a covered boat, you'll drift slowly past a 2,000-year-old Native American burial mound, a Cajun cemetery and fishing village. Here, birds, snakes, turtles, fur animals, and gators are the kings of the swamp and easily spotted in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Gators do hibernate during the cold winter months, but lay on the bayou banks on warmer days.

The slow drift of our tour boats through moss-draped trees and small waterways provide ample opportunity for viewing and photography. The tour boats are fully narrated and captains are natives of the Barataria Swamps with a background of gator hunting, fishing, and trapping. 

Boats have a roof, restroom, cushioned seats, and windows that can be raised or lowered during cold or rainy weather, along with plenty of standing and walking room.
